This is the moment an out-of-control quad biker crashes head-on into an oncoming car nad flies high into the air before rising to his feet as if nothing happened.
The incident was filmed on the Lesoparkoviy Road in the city of Tolyatti in the south-western Russian region of Samara Oblast near Europe’s longest river, the Volga.

According to local media, the driver of the all-terrain vehicle (ATV) careered into the wrong lane while going around a corner and hit a Lada Kalina head-on.
In the footage filmed by the motorist in the car behind, the Lada is seen approaching a bend as the headlights of the speeding quad bike come into view.
The out-of-control quad biker then appears to cross onto the wrong side of the road and crashes into the Lada Kalina head-on.
The ATV biker is sent flying through the air and lands hard on the gravel by the side of the road.
Meanwhile, his crashed quad bike appears to hit the front of another vehicle, reportedly a minibus.
The quad biker, who is seen wearing a helmet, gingerly gets to his feet and taking a moment to absorb what just happened.
At the end of the clip, the biker walks back to where his ATV hit the Lada.
Local media said that the unnamed man required medical treatment after the accident, but did not specify the severity of his injuries. No one else was injured, according to reports.
It is unclear whether the local authorities are investigating the incident.
